Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Build, organize, and evaluate the necessary documents and data for the revitalization of water courses. Assess, evaluate and express the extent necessary revitalization of the water flow in the area. Based on previously acquired knowledge of technically and biologically oriented subjects to formulate, explain and justify the need for implementation of the revitalization of river systems. Suggest a modification of the variants of solution proposals for the revitalization of water flow conditions of each individual water flow in relation to its surroundings.

Subject syllabus:

1. Introduction - basic concepts and relations watercourse as a bio-corridor. 2. Present status of watercourses in the CR - regulation of water flows in the CR, the negative effects of changes of water flows. 3. Small rivers - feature in the landscape, the current status. 4. Revitalization of streams - ecological and landscape assessment of watercourses, the general principles of revitalization. 5. Defeault basis for revitalization - administrative data, characteristics of natural conditions, hydrological, geological, hydrogeological, pedological exploration, surveying documents. 6. Evaluation of current state of flux - part of building the technical, biological and biotechnical part, the quality of water in a river. 7. Evaluation of current state of objects on the stream. Situational solutions transverse and longitudinal profile and relationship to the abstraction of water - water supply and wastewater treatment. 8. Construction technical measures used to revitalize - the principles of ecological adaptations of watercourses, construction used when editing through (in the transverse and longitudinal profile, strengthening the bottom and sides). 9. Biotechnical and biological measures for the revitalization - riparian vegetation, the accompanying vegetation (vegetation types, their planting and maintenance), their purpose and meaning. 10. Biotechniccal and biological measures for the revitalization - vegetation protection zones and inundation areas (types of vegetation, the planting and maintenance), their purpose and meaning. 11. Solution adjustment and revitalization flows in relation to agriculture and forestry, the importance of the natural accumulation of water, water streams and protected areas, the possibility of maintaining "gone-wild rivers' water flow as a bio-corridor. 12. Solution adjustment and revitalization in relation to the recreation of the population (including technical and social facilities), the possibility of applying the principles of revitalization in urban areas, related to flood measures. 13. Ichtyological terms of revitalization of water courses. 14. Constuction elements improving the environment of fish, fishery management, shelters. 15. Law adjustments in the revitalization of water courses - the role of relevant authorities (Municipal Office, Town Hall, etc., financial resources, organizational structure of security revitalization. Practice: Processing and presentation of a seminar on the theme "Design revitalization of the selected section of a watercourse." Field work to obtain the necessary documents.
